After receiving a large number of requests from residents for coyote traps, the Los Angeles Animal Services Department explained its policy Wednesday. Although there is a ban against trapping coyotes, there are several exceptions, spokeswoman Jackie David said. Coyotes may be trapped if they are sick or injured or if there is a county, state or federal mandate to trap them because of health and welfare risks, she said. A sick coyote will be taken to a city shelter and euthanized, David said.

Amid the contending calculations in the San Fernando Valley secession debate, Nancy Smith has marked a small territory as her own. While others quarrel over how many millions in federal grant dollars City Hall has denied the Valley over the years, and whether a new Valley city could afford the $1.3 billion in "alimony" it would owe Los Angeles, Smith sticks to small integers.

The head of Los Angeles animal control announced a stepped-up effort to get pet owners to comply with a new spaying and neutering law, which was given final approval Wednesday by the City Council. The new campaign will send workers door to door to tell residents about low-cost programs for sterilizing their animals, said Dan Knapp, general manager of the city Animal Services Department.

Sure, you love your pet. It has its own unique personality and does that cute little trick with the ball of yarn. But do you know your pet well enough to pick it out of hundreds of other furry critters cramped into cages and kennels? That is the predicament facing people who boarded their pets with an animal rescue facility in Van Nuys that was raided and shut down last month by the city's Animal Services Department.

In recent weeks, one neighborhood in the Larchmont Village section of Los Angeles has been under siege: graffiti scrawlings, stink bombs, menacing midnight phone calls and, in July, a bomb scare that forced an evacuation. Police and political leaders say it's a part of an escalation by animal rights activists in Los Angeles, whom critics charge are turning away from legitimate protest and embracing illegal harassment tactics and vandalism.

It's been a busy summer for coyote sightings in Granada Hills and Woodland Hills, which in turn means a lot of phone calls to the Los Angeles Animal Services Department. Before you pick up the phone, though, you may want to consider whether you're doing all you can to discourage the critters from making unwelcome visits. Among the steps you can take are keeping pet food and water dishes inside, backyard fruit picked up and trash cans tightly closed.

Laboratory tests confirmed Tuesday that the deaths of five dogs within four days in a one-block neighborhood last month were caused by strychnine poisoning. The test results will prompt further investigation to determine whether the poisonings were intentional, said Peter Persic, spokesman for the Los Angeles Animal Services Department. An earlier toxicology report ruled out the most common type of poisoning--anticoagulants used to kill rodents.
